When Libriomancer came out as an audio book, I started receiving messages explaining that while people enjoyed the story (most of them, at least), the narration left something to be desired. The same criticism popped up in reviews on Amazon and the Audible.com site.I’m very happy to say that Audible took the complaints seriously, and decided to completely re-record the book. The audio book was pulled until they could get the new recording finished.
As of last night, the audio version of Libriomancer is once again available for sale at Amazon and Audible.com. My thanks to Audible for taking the time to try to make this right. I’ve not yet heard the new version, but I’m told the narration by David de Vries is a significant improvement.
(While I’m thinking about it, if you’re an Audible.com author, check out Audible Author Services. Basically, they pay the author an extra $1 per sale, presumably on the hope that we authors will do some extra promotion. I’m not aware of any downside here.)
And that’s all I’ve got for now. I have one week to turn in the final revision of Codex Born, and a nonfiction deadline snuck up on me earlier this week, so it’s frazzled-Jim time again here in Michigan.Have a great weekend, all!
